Great entertainment. Great food & service.
"Food was very good throughout the ship our only disappointment was the Wndjammer closed at 3pm every day, sometimes if we have been off the ship or had lunch somewhere else we don’t always want a large dinner but the only option was the main dining room (we don’t eat pizza!All passengers were asked a preferred time they wished to leave and once given your time were told breakfast was available but afterwards everyone had to return to their cabins, no loitering in the stairwells or gathering in any areas...."Read More

Not a real good Cruise

I am a Diamond Member on RCCL and to me they are going down hill with there quality of service and caring about long time Loyal travelers. They are charging for everything anymore. The show's on the ship are great if you can get to see them, On the Oasis Of the Seas class you could book them before you got on the ship but not anymore, so you have to try and book them when you get on the ship GOOD ...

As a regular who normally spends $8-10k per trip on Royal, I can honestly say that I will never sail with them again. I remember so many cruises on the Royal in the Junior Suites with so many perks, I said I would never sail with any other line and for years that is what I did and our group. I and the entire group, just canceled today in total disgust of what their bean counters have done to what ...

This was our first cruise. We chose Royal Caribbean Symphony of the seas because we heard that it was at the top of the list for family oriented vacations and it definitely exceeded all expectations in my opinion. The beauty of the ship itself is enough to leave you standing in awe, but when we were welcomed by every...I mean every staff member with the warmest welcome and hospitality that is ...

We chose this cruise because it was supposed to be this amazing experience but we did have a lot of trouble with a big group in my opinion royal Caribbean does not handle big groups very well Especially if it’s a mixed group of handicapped, elderly, and minors from 6 months-17. We had a group of 11 and we were celebrating five generations. This was a very expensive trip for me I worked Tons of ...

We took 2 cruises (back-to-back) on Symphony of the Seas from 29 January 2022 and from 5 February 2022. On the cruise we encountered three major problems: 1) We were not informed that the cruise itinerary changed We found out on board our second cruise that San Juan was dropped as a port of call and another sea day was added instead. Our main reason to book the second cruise was to go to ...

We joined Symphony on 2/5 boarding was a breeze on board and in stateroom in under twenty minutes. The ship is and when we left on the 26th spotless the crew constantly cleaning . We were a bit apprehensive about cruising when we first boarded but that immediately lessened when we saw how much the protocols where observed by crew and passengers. It’s amazing how quickly we got used to mask wearing ...

My wife and I sailed on the Symphony of the Seas on 2/5/22. This is another great Oasis class ship. It was very questionable whether we were going to make this cruise as we were flying American Airlines and 7 PM Friday night they cancel our flight for 7 AM Saturday morning. We were lucky that we could book a Southwest flight and it got us to Miami on time. It did not take us very long to get on ...

Symphony of the Seas~Western Caribbean January 29-February 5, 2022 Hubby had seen a video of this ship on YouTube in 2020 and was hooked. The whole purpose of this cruise was to experience Symphony. The last RCI ship we were on was Vision OTS for a Baltic cruise. We had never been on an Oasis class vessel. This was our 16th cruise and we had been to all the islands except Honduras ...

Having cruised on Oasis, Allure and Harmony I was eager to finally get to sail onboard Symphony of the Seas. I had purchased the at home test kits as a back up, just in case our two tests at Walgreens and CVS didn't come back in time. I am so happy I did because neither came back until one and two days after we had sailed. I would not recommend CVS or Walgreen's right now, we were even told at ...

When the pandemic hit, we had 3 cruises booked that were canceled. This cruise was the first we’ve taken since the beginning of the pandemic. We had low expectations and a flexible mindset which helped. The ship was beautiful and still seemed very new. We ate breakfast & lunch at Solarium Bistro or Park Cafe. Both were a great option. Dinner in the Main Dining Room was very good and we had ...
